Strain Relief Plastic Cable Cover for Ethicon Johnson&Johnson HPblue Handpiece
A strain relief is a standard fixture for electrical cables that functions as a feature for relieving the stress from the cable connections themselves to prevent them from breaking. It is located in the base of the connector where the connector meets the cable and usually comes pre-molded as part of the connector itself. It is the part of the connector that looks like a sleeve over the cable and is often segmented to allow somelimited bending without problems.
The strain relief, as the name suggests, relieves a cable of stresses and tensions that could break the conductor inside or the connection betweenthe plug or connector and the cable.
